Next Stop (by DrewVigal)
Getting on the F train in Brooklyn most mornings, I often wish there was a way to reveal (via some augmented reality technology) which stop a seated passenger will get off on so I can stand near them. This will ultimate increase my chances of getting a seat for my 45-minute-ish ride to midtown.
Obviously, standing isn’t a huge deal, but it makes reading on an iPad a bit easier.
Now if everyone had that technology, the knowledge wouldn’t be unique and thus ultimately render that advantage useless. Maybe the same technology can be used to help the non-observant recognize an elderly or a pregnant woman standing on the train.
OK. Maybe I’ve spent too much time already thinking about it. Said it. Done.
